A trip out….part 2

After returning from a photoshoot recently, the tailgate on my trusty old wagon wouldn’t open. So climbed in the boot and managed to open it, then set about finding the cause, I knew that it wasn’t the latch or the motor that was causing the issue as the rear wiper, rear fogs & reversing light all error messaged. On cutting away the rubber cover it revealed two snapped wires, as well as several that looked like they may go at any time. I thought about soldering the breaks, but solder is brittle & likely to fail, in the end I ordered a crimping tool & some connectors. 10 minutes later, with the addition of plenty of wiring loom tape & a little insulating tape, Job Jobbed.
